Admission Process

The admission process at our Faculty consists of two main steps:

  • Completing the admission requirements specific to your chosen programme(s)

    This includes the submission of relevant documents. For admission requirements, please visit the program pages.

  • Providing proof of previous study

    All programs require that you submit a certificate of previous studies. This means that you have to provide your Bachelor's degree if you want to apply to one of our Master's programs.

Applicants with special needs can request that the admission process be adapted to meet their needs. In this case, a medical report must be included in the application form. In case of any questions, feel free to reach out to us at .

Application Form and Deadline

Applications are accepted from November 1, 2023, with a final application deadline of February 29, 2024, or July 31, 2024, depending on the study program. Application forms are available via our Admissions portal here (programs taught in English) and here (program Deutsche und französische Philosophie taught in German).

Admission Information

The deadline for applicants to submit proof of previous study is September 30, 2024. Please, be aware that the process of recognition/nostrification takes some time - up to 1 month for recognition and up to 3 months for nostrification. When planning your enrolment and studies, keep in mind that you should submit all the relevant documents sufficiently in advance.

Applicants who are unable to get their foreign diploma recognized/nostrified untill the end of September are allowed to submit a copy of their BA diploma no later than October 22, 2024. This is the extended and final deadline for enrolment in the academic year 2024/2025. Please, keep in mind that the academic year already starts on October 1.

Recognition of Foreign Diplomas and Degrees

Without having finished the nostrification/recognition process, you cannot be enrolled in the study if you have received an education certificate outside of the Czech Republic. You can start the process once you receive confirmation that you have been accepted to your chosen program. During this process, please, take into consideration the approximate length of each individual procedure.

To begin, you will need your BA diploma together with the supplements you received with it, e.g. diploma transcript. You will not be using the original documents but verified copies of the original. These copies should be certified either through an apostille (in case you are from one of the states that signed the Apostille convention) or super-legalization. Please, bear in mind that only copies in English or Czech language will be accepted for this process.

You can find out more about recognition and nostrification onthe page "Recognition of Foreign Diplomas and Degrees".
